Daniel Gassin Trio & Guests (Paris/New York/Melbourne)
Sun 14th January @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm$15 - $20
Third-place in the 2013 National Jazz Piano Award and a semi-finalist at the Bosendorfer Jazz Solo Piano Competition at the 2007 Montreux Jazz Festival, Australian/French pianist and composer Daniel Gassin is on a brief visit from Paris, where he has been based for the last five years. He has performed with many leading French jazz musicians, as well as visiting U.S. artists Dave Liebman, George Garzone, John Riley and Bob Sheppard. He is presenting mainly original material in a trio setting, with Sam Anning (acoustic bass) and Aaron McCoullough (drums), with the addition of special guests in Remco Keijzer (tenor sax), expatriate Hugh Stuckey (guitar), and Josh Kyle (vocals).
Since moving to France, Daniel has become a regular fixture on the local scene, performing and touring extensively in Paris, throughout France and abroad in both club and festival settings. Highlights include a five-week stand inaugurating Quincy Jones’ new club – Q’s – in Dubai with UK drummer Ollie Howell, a five-concert tour of Sweden with his own trio, and recording and launching Josiah Woodson’s Elemental Suite. He has also performed and recorded with numerous local heavyweights such as Linley Marthe, Rick Margitza, Remi Vignolo, Baptiste Herbin, Felipe Cabrera, Jeff Boudreaux, Thierry Fanfant, Benjamin Henocq and Hermon Mehari.
